Reflecting back

I thought it would be neat to go back and look at all the pictures from when Kyla was born. I had my mom in the delivery room so she got a couple good videos and pictures of various things...obviously not the birth but she did get right after. I have been watching them over and over and of course bawling my eyes out! I am getting so excited to do it all again, I don't know why we want to go through that pain but after they are here it's totally worth it. I had a rough labour but i'm willing to do it again for these next two. It seems like yesterday Kyla was born and it was 2 years ago. I can't believe how fast time goes and it scares me to think of these twins 2 years old! Kyla came out really fast and she was really bruised on her face, arm and top of her head. She was 3 1/2 weeks early but she weighed 6lbs 12oz and was a healthy girl. She was a little jaundice but that's the only complicaton she had. We came home after 3 days in the hospital. I'm actually excited to see what this next experience goes like compared to the first. Brand New!

An update

I figured I should put a new post up since it's been a while. Not too much is new. I am almost 31 weeks now and I can't believe how fast it has gone by, I just hope the next few go by even faster. We had another little scare on Thursday night. I woke up at 1:30 in the morning having contractions again so we went into the hospital. They said I had an infection of some sort and it started the contractions (any kind of sickness or infection can start labour.) So they pumped me with 3 bags of IV and some antibiotics. I have so many different holes in my arms from needles and IV's it's insane! Dustin said I have had my blood pressure taken more this pregnancy than he has his whole life and he is just gonna buy me my own blood pressure machine so when they need it I can do it at home and just call them and tell them what it is! He was laughing at me the whole time cuz I practically live in the hospital and everytime they checked me or poked me with a needle or took my blood pressure he would laugh. Anyways everything stopped and turned out ok, we got sent home after all the IV bags were done. We were really tired the next day and slept for most of it. I am so ready to be done with this pregnancy and all the complications that came with it. I hope these next few are easy and I go into labour at the right time and won't have to be flown to Edmonton. I was panicking the other day cuz I started to make a list of things we still need and we need everything!! I havent really thought about how much we don't have yet. Little things such as soothers, bottles, and even diapers! I've been so distracted I haven't even realized it. So I went on a wal-mart shopping spree the other day and bought some stuff finally. I feel a little better now. I just hope they have our stroller in stock next week when Jill and Travis go to Edmonton.

I decided to start Kyla up again on potty training. I'm sure she could of been trained by now with the huge interest she was showing in January but I was just so sick with morning sickness I didn't have the energy or patience to do it. We bought her some princess pull-ups and some panties, so far she has gone a few times in the big potty, not even in her little potty she wants to go on the big one! My mom bought a little seat for her and she loves it. She sits on it forever! So lets hope she catches on before these babies come. If anyone has any good pointers on potty training I'm open to hear anything, i've never done it before and i'm hoping i'm doing it right.

I had to post this picture. This is a daily ritual after dinner the girls strip down as fast as they can and are ready for their bubble bath. Cute little bums eh?

Our babies!

Here is the ultrasound pictures from Monday's Doctors appointment, (29 weeks) They are so much bigger than before. The top one is Baby B, which is a really good profile shot. The bottom one is Baby A and you can't really see it but the face is looking away, so we see her back. You can see her hand and spine though. The doctor took lots of Baby B, poor A got neglected but she wouldn't turn around for us. I am getting so excited, I only have 4 more weeks until its safe to deliver here! I would like to go further but it's just so nice knowing that if I don't have that much further to go before they'll keep me here, cuz I don't want to go to Edmonton. I'll be putting a picture up on Monday of my belly of 30 weeks!
